“Podcasting is reaching people for an extended period of time, and you couldn’t get that access normally…it’s an expedition of the know, like, and trust factor.” (2:28)

“Goals of ‘I want to be on a podcast because I want to reach expert status, get that authority, credibility, reputation, get known influence,’ etc. Those come at about step five or six. You have to go all the way back to the beginning and think, who am I talking to, and what do I want them to do as a result of listening to me on the show?” (3:51)

“Practice in private before you go public” (12:35)

“People will say, ‘done is better than perfect,’ and that is true in a lot of cases, but when it comes to pitching the media for earned media, it’s not the case. You have one chance, and that’s it. If you blow it, you’re not getting that booking, and your personal brand is damaged.” (8:06)
